Jordan Bruno is off to a good start, and has been promoted to L3 based on his performance on the All Blues – Beantown second-side match last weekend.
Congratulations to one of our newer Pelicans. He’ll be working with Bruce Carter and Bryant Byrnes at a Sevens tournament with the sailors of the USS Carl Vinson this weekend.
Although, Jordan: send in match reports. Rugby people want to know!

No report received.
Seconds: All Blues 10 – BEANTOWN 43 Referee: Jordan Bruno
No report received.
Chico State 26 – ALUMNI 35 Referee: Rich Boyer
AR: Mark Godfrey
Chico State started strong and ended the first half tied with the more seasoned alumni team. The alumni had some nice back movements and dominated the third period. Chico State did not give up and scored two tries in the late stages of the game. Chico alumni won 35-26. The game was fast paced and featured strong tackling and running. A big thank you to Mark Godfrey for AR duties.
Sierra Tens in Sacramento – CANCELED
Lady Razorbacks 5 –SACRAMENTO AMAZONS 68 Referee: Pete Smith
I was optimistic it would be a great game. The Lady Razorbacks had shown so well during the summer, but just didn’t have the numbers. They kicked off with 14, had a prop go down for a while, and picked up a late arriver, finished with 13. Twenty minutes in it was 5-5, but the Amazons woke up and EPA just didn’t have the depth to compete. Final score 68-5. I will say they had a pretty good crowd. I was surprised, but most of the EPA men’s team was there in support as were several of the players from many years past.
